    Happy Halloween from The League of Gentlemen’s Psychoville

    I think I’ve decided that only thing that could rival the fanboy love and appreciation for Sherlock Holmes by the mind palaces of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss is the love of film and all things Hitchcock-ian by League of Gentlemen alumni, Steve Pemberton and Reese Shearsmith. Case in point. Following the greatness of The League of Gentlemen series, […]

    Are we about to say goodbye to the greatness of ‘W1A’?

    When you’re the BBC, you faced with having to make endless monumental decisions on an hourly basis. This is no more painfully evident than in what could be the final episode ever of W1A as it seems there’s only one BBC bike and Amanda Holden is not going to be riding it.

    Could Miranda possibly “what we call”…return?

    Thanks to a bit of a recent nudge from Tom Ellis, a.k.a. Gary Preston, the brilliant mind palace of Miranda Hart has begun to consider bringing back her semi-autobiographical sitcom, Miranda.

    Pre-Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle provided setting for Jeeves and Wooster “Totleigh Towers”

Bertie) Wooster and his impeccably witty valet, Jeeves, to life in P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves and Wooster. Airing  from 1990-1993, the series brought Wodehouse’s popular short stories to life for 4 seasons. Totleigh Towers, the recurring fictional […]
